Denim bucket hat by Maison Martin Margiela, $105.00 at Project No. 8
Bucket hats were never cool. Bucket hats never will be cool. Avey Tare is cool despite his bucket hats. Even diehard Animal Collective fans think it looks dumb. Imagine this is the beginning of 2009 and Merriweather Post Pavillion is the coolest thing out there. In this situation, bucket hats are still not cool. I know MMM is all about the high/low thing, but at a certain point, you are just spending a ton of money on something tacky and lame.

Submitted by Sarah. Remember that Mentos commercial from the 90s where the business man sits on the freshly painted bench, pops Mento, and then rolls on the bench to evenly paint pinstripes over his suit. Remember thinking, “there is no way those stripes would look so even and clean.” This is what that suit would actually look like… if it was actually a pair of low rise skinny jeans.
Submitted by Chrys. Sometime ago I considered posting this Alexander Wang denim covered hoodie, but I decided that it was stupid, but not ugly enough to warrant a post. This takes that idea to a new level. Is there really a market out there for trompe l’oeil denim? What is even worse is that it appears to be a motif D&G arerunning with.
Submitted by Kevin. A few days ago, some friends showed me PajamaJeans. They were worried that this novelty lounge pant would make its way outdoors and be worn in public. I laughed off their fears, thinking it could never happen. Today, I received this submission and realized that I was very naive.
